Frugal green tomato curry
Yesterday we cleared the last of the tomato plants from the vegetable beds and ended up with quite a few green tomatoes. The most obvious use is to make them into a chutney or pickle but after searching the internet we found a variety of recipes to use our green tomatoes. The recipes ranged from a green tomato bread to a cake or a curry. We decided to adapt the curry recipes to one which made use of the ingredients we have available.
Enough olive oil for frying
4 garlic cloves - chopped finely
1 onion finely chopped
2 finely chopped peppers
250g of cubed potato
250g cored, green tomato chopped finely
Salt to taste
Curry powder depending on the hotness you prefer
Add all the other ingredients (except for the coriander) and cook for 5 minutes - stirring occasionally
Pour in a cup of water and stir, bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes
Once cooled slightly stir in the chopped coriander and serve with rice. A tasty meal on a cold evening.
